Hey! What are the most reliable programmes for seeign the temperature of your cpu and case? I use motherboard monitor at the moment, but i find it hard to believe that stock cooling is cooler than when i have the 3 other fans i have on :S

The BIOS is the best place.

It depends how you have the fans placed. If they are all intake, than it isn't surprising.

It's just a fan turned around to bring fresh air in to the case,You will want to have a nice flow going thru to help keep the temp's down,You will need atleast 1 or 2 exhaust fan's as well for good flow.

You will want fan's that are toward's the front as intake,The fan's near the rear should be used for exhaust so you get a nice flow right thru the case.

Shouldn't be a problem with doing that what so ever.
